SSG Landers won 8-5 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League Doosan Bears game held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 26th. SSG is in 3rd 먹튀검증 place with 58 wins, 1 draw and 47 losses from 106 matches.
The game that day was a thrilling game until the end of the 10th inning. It was a match where the flow continued to go back and forth between the two teams, but in the end SSG laughed.
One of the watersheds in the game was SSG outfielder Ha Jae-hoon’s two-run home run in the top of the 4th inning. It was Ha Jae-hoon, who entered the plate with two out and second base in the top of the 4th inning. In a situation where the count was driven by 2 strikes and 2 balls, he hit the fastball of opponent starter Raul Alcantara and fired a superior two-run four. It was great to pass Jamsil, but it was also great to react to Alcantara’s 154km ball. It was truly a two-run gun of monstrous power.
Ha Jae-hoon really hit hard that day, including a home run, 2 hits in 4 at-bats, 2 RBIs, and 1 walk. Thanks to this, SSG was able to win by breaking a 5-game losing streak.
Ha Jae-hoon, as is widely known, is the owner of the ability to have a rare career of batter→pitcher→batter. After working as a hitter in the US Minor League and Japanese professional baseball, he changed his position to a pitcher after joining SSG (then SK Wyverns) in 2019, and he became the save king with 36 saves based on his fast ball that year. However, after a shoulder injury in 2020, his restraint continued to decrease, so he switched back to hitting.
It was in 2022 that he became active as a hitter again. He, of course, he bats first, but it is not easy to jump over a three-year hiatus and become active again.
Moreover, at the pro level, pitchers’ ball is literally a weapon that threatens survival. This is because the hard ball crosses 140km and 150km and heads towards the hitters.
However, Ha Jae-hoon is proving his talent by playing an active role as a hitter again. Here, he passed the ball over 154 km at Jamsil Baseball Stadium, the largest in Korea. It can be said that it is a part that suggests the power and talent of Ha Jae-hoon.
